Report rips school for hazing inaction
A blistering state report released Friday contends that Florida A&M University officials failed to follow state laws and regulations on hazing in the years leading up to the death of a FAMU drum major. A 32-page report concludes that the school lacked internal controls to prevent or detect hazing, citing a lack of communication. But investigators said there was insufficient evidence to conclude whether university officials ignored allegations of hazing given to them by the former director of The Marching 100 band shortly before the November 2011 death of Robert Champion. Larry Robinson, FAMU’s interim president, said the university would officially review the report for any inaccuracies.
